Brompton Cycle Routes: Extended design challenges
The Brompton Cycle Route projects offer students experience of the design process from initial brief through market and product research, generating design ideas, modelling/trialling, production planning and evaluation. The activities are presented in the context of the Brompton Bicycle Company and offer opportunities to research a real company and its products and markets. This resource provides the overview and lesson plans for the project. The classroom resources for the project can be found below. There are five Cycle Routes which students could follow; the tasks and learning outcomes are the same in each but the specific challenges have been chosen to reflect the five strands of the design and technology curriculum.
